They don't need to ban cell phones at gas stations; they need to ban ungrounded, loosely crumpled, gasoline-soaked aluminum foil at gas stations.

Yeah, and if you make enough phone calls beside a pig, it will fly.

Is there nothing in life you can count on?

JuggaloReign,
"That's it. Iab.....I QUIT! No more stupid posts for this guy!"

Good by.
It's not as if you ever submitted better content.
so sorry you've "quit" but not really much of a loss for us.

Mythbusters Disagrees

Thanks @darkmagic14n!

This is either an outright fake, OR the radio waves from the phone heat the foil which causes the gasoline vapors to ignite.

The SOURCE of the "cellphone myth" was a firefighter's casual comment in British Columbia, Canada. When asked why a gas station had burned, he said in part of his answer "a spark from a cellphone" might have caused it (amoung other things). Nevermind that this has never happened! People still believe it!

Hmmmmm ... so under ideal conditions (scrunched foil has lots of short edges, makes a good aerial for UHF us used by mobile phones; short gaps, to allow tiny sparks to jump; a high concentration of petrol fumes, indoors with no ventilation) the phone has to be held a couple of centimetres from the foil and then there is a small chance of a spark during a call. Noting that the inverse square law applies, so ten times the distance would only give 1% of the power you have to realise that this does not mean that a mobile phone is actually hazardous in a petrol station, unless you are very careful to try and create a hazard!
